CHARLESTOWN — A Charlestown man has been arrested on preliminary charges of possession of child pornography and molestation after an investigation by Indiana State Police.
Justin A. Freytag, 36, was arrested Wednesday following an investigation begun in October by the ISP Internet Crimes Against Children task force, after the task force received a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, a news release said.
Police executed a search warrant at Freytag’s residence and interviewed him. He was arrested on initial preliminary charges of possession and dissemination of child pornography. Further investigation brought forth information that could lead to charges of child exploitation, the news release said.
Formal charges had not been filed as of Thursday afternoon, and the investigation is ongoing. Freytag is being held in Clark County jail on a $100,000 cash-only bond.
